COPENHAGEN–David Andersen is known for his hard-edged androgynous menswear–he’s used women to model his menswear in the past. Both Diddy-Dirty Money and Paris Hilton have worn his pieces (if your mindgrapes can handle that). This year, his label David Andersen Denmark launched women’s ready to wear at an IMAX movie theater in the heart of Copenhagen.
Taking a page from Gareth Pugh, Andersen showed a 3-D fashion film to present his collection. At the end of the film–very kaleidoscopic, black and white and Pugh-inspired–Andersen sent out real live models, too, who walked the aisles of the movie theater as if it were a catwalk and not carpeted in a tacky red and gold-print carpet lined with exit aisle lights. The clothes were less spectacular than the show but consistent, hyper-androgynous, and street-cool nonetheless–lots of tight black leather, slouchy tanks, and white button-downs that took some inspiration from Rick Owens. And in keeping with today’s androgynous model trend, Andersen’s male models were gorgeous enough to give model-of-the-moment Andrej Pejic a run for his money.
Take a look.
